blurb

Sydney Paige was never so mortified to hear the words “wrong number” in her life. She meant to tell off the guy who broke her best friend’s heart, but unleashed her anger on a perfect stranger instead. And now her world is turned upside down by the captivating man who wants to keep her on the line.

Brian Savage is living a life he’s quickly come to hate-until Sydney’s wild rant has him hooked and hungry for more. Soon the sexy woman on the phone becomes the lover in his bed. But Brian has secrets, and the closer he lets Syd get, the harder it is to shield her from the devastating mistakes of his past . . .

Excerpt

I showered and shaved, slathered on my favorite sweet-smelling body lotion, slid into the dress after deciding on a thong and no bra, thanks to the mesh, and curled and teased my hair, giving it body and height that looked kick-ass paired with my outfit.

I also went to town on my makeup job, keeping everything heavy but the kind of heavy that screamed fierce concertgoer and not back alley hooker.

Dark, smoky eyes, false lashes that flared at the ends, and warm cerise lipstick.

I felt pretty. Really pretty.

The kind of pretty a girl had to commemorate with a selfie, and there was only one person in the entire world I wanted to send that selfie to.

I bit my lip while swiping my phone off the bed and pulling up the camera mode.

I was nervous.

Understandably so. This would be the first time Brian was going to see me.

Like ever.

Heavy stuff right there.

I’d thought about sending him pictures before, but got sidetracked with conversation and his sweet as warmed honey voice I wanted to taste, and all thoughts of pictures would slip my mind. Considering he never asked to see a photo of me didn’t help either.

Since he wasn’t bringing it up, I was hardly thinking about it.

But right now, standing in my bedroom with my makeup done up and my hair looking prettier than it had on prom night, sending Brian a picture of me was suddenly all I could think about.

And before I could think or whisper talk myself out of it, I reversed the camera so I could see myself on the screen, held the device out in front of me and off to the right a bit, pursed my stained lips into a kiss, other hand poised at my chin to blow it, and snapped the picture.

Then I attached it to a text and hit Send.

 

Feeling WILD.

 

I wanted to put my phone down. Really I did, especially since I had to snap on my studded cuff bracelet and that required use of both hands, furthermore because Tori had given me a fifteen-minute warning close to fifteen minutes ago, but I couldn’t let the damn thing go.

I couldn’t stop looking at it either.

My stomach was clenched. I was biting my fist and pacing the length of the bed, head down and eyes anxiously focused.

But when the little bubbles floated in teasing intervals on my screen and I knew Brian had seen my photo, that’s when the real panic set in.

Would he like how I looked? Would it be how he had imagined and confessed to imagining countless times late at night to me, or better, would my photo exceed the limits of his imagination and paint a more pleasing image in his mind?

Or would he hate it and me for sending it to him, shattering his dreamed-up spank-bank material and ruining every orgasm I ever gave him?

Shit.

Shit!

Which was it and why the hell was he taking so long to type? Didn’t he know this was killing me?

“Hurry up!” I whispered against the screen.

It started ringing in response to my plea, startling me and nearly slipping out of my hand.

Oh, God, he was calling.

 

Fate. Hate. Love. Lies.

Which four letter word will change their lives forever?

Amore (Part 1) by Bella Jewel

 It’s LIVE! Part 1 of Bella Jewel’s latest release, Amore is finally here!

Blurb

 

“It is not love that defines us, Julietta. It is love that destroys us.”

I’m just a normal girl.

Or so you would think.

I’ve never thought of myself as anything different.

Until I met him.

He doesn’t think I’m normal.

He thinks I’m special.

Special enough to be in his life.

Special enough to enter his world.

Special enough for his bed.

Rafael Lencioni. Dangerous. Beautiful. Terrifying.

My story is the one that’s never told.

I’m not the daughter.

I’m not the wife.

I’m not a sister or a mother.

I’m not his enemy and I’m not his friend.

I’m not who you think I am.

So for me to fit into their world, I have to do something I never wanted in my life.

Something I would have frowned upon until I met him.

I have to change who I am.

I have to shut down my heart.

I have to accept my place.

My body belongs to him.

My heart isn’t permitted to.

Those are his rules.

But rules were made to be broken…right?

Review

Usually I’m quite wary of books with a cliffhanger but with part two being released very soon and it being Bella Jewel I knew I couldn’t resist this one!

Julietta was just like every other girl, or so she thought, until she met Rafael Lencioni. Dark, mysterious and drop dead gorgeous she knew he was different but she didn’t realise she was spending time with a mafia boss. What’s worse is now she’s had a taste of him she’s not sure she can let him go, despite the danger he poses to her. This is a very different type of mafia book, telling another side of the mafia lifestyle. I’m not going to go into it too much detail because I don’t want to ruin it for you but I REALLY enjoyed reading this and I can not wait for part two. Rafael is everything you could want from an alpha, testosterone fuelled mafia boss and of course that leads to some very steamy scenes. Highly recommend this one, even with the cliffhanger and I’m now desperately waiting for part 2!

Defying Dorian by Sloan Storm

Dorian has arrived people! The wait is over!

Defying-Dorian-eBook

Synopsis

HATING HIM WAS EASY… UNTIL LOVING HIM MADE IT IMPOSSIBLE.

TEMPEST

B*stard. Hunk. Billionaire. My life was just fine before he swept me up – hauling me away in those thick, strong, tattooed arms and dragging me off to God knows where.
Now, it’s do what he says, when he says, or else.

I’d run as far my legs would carry me, if only I could. Under the guise of protecting me, he’s locked me away at his opulent estate complete with everything a girl could want – except my freedom.

I mean, sure, it’s almost impossible to resist his bad boy attitude, insane good looks and rock hard… muscles. Even so, I’m determined not to fall under his spell. Unfortunately, my melting panties seem to have ideas of their own.

He’s the most dangerous man I’ve ever met. How could I ever trust someone like him to protect me from anyone – especially himself?

DORIAN

It was supposed to be simple. Just do a favor for a friend – hell, a brother.
Everything went to plan. Well, almost. Once I got my arms around Tempest, nothing would ever be simple again.

Now she’s in danger and there’s no one who can, who could, protect her like me. She talked tough but had a lot to learn about life’s harder edges. The problem is that unless you know what you’re doing, those edges can cut and sometimes, much worse.

Normally, women like her don’t exist in my reality – except for one reason. But keeping her with me has nothing to do with getting her in bed. Combing my hair is harder than finding a warm body to fill that role.

Or at least, that’s how it started…

Now unless I can hear her scream my name for the rest of my life, I’ll never be satisfied.

I won’t settle for anything less.

Review

I have read and loved all of the books Sloan has published thus far so when I say this is her best yet you know it has to be good!

Tempest was doing just fine until her boyfriend whisked her off, proposed and got her involved in a deadly car chase, one that led to her being carried away in the strong arms of her kidnapper. Now locked away in his mansion she has no way to escape and can only do his bidding; the bidding of a man she hates. He keeps saying its to keep her safe but can she really trust him? What’s more her hatred is slowly turning into something much more deadly – lust.

I LOVED every minute of Defying Dorian; the suspense, the drama and of course the romance. Once I started I stayed exactly where I was and ignored everyone until I had finished, I barely even moved for food and drink, and believe me it takes something REALLY special to keep me from my morning coffee! If you like a romance with a dark and dangerous hero, a lot of steaminess and of course a HEA then this is the one for you. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED READ.
